Stamp Nation and Catherine Pooler Challenge.

Hi Everyone!  I am so excited to try a challenge from Catherine Pooler and Stamp Nation.
I stared following Catherine Pooler about a month ago and fell in love with her cards and her personality.  I watched a ton of videos and then read up on her group called Stamp Nation.  So I finally gave in to my little voice and tried out a membership with Stamp Nation.  I am still learning the in's and out's of the site, but I am loving it.  It has tons of videos and lots of things people have made and then shared on the site.  It's amazing all the ladies and gentlemen out there that make such great art!
So Catherine Pooler just did a new website update with fresh new designs and a new logo.  You should definitely check out her blog and if you like her like I do, you will want to join the Stamp Nation too!
Along with her new site design she is having a challenge with chances to win some great prizes.  Her challenge is "Home".  So I have made three cards so far.

I made two that have a very girly vintage feeling to them.  I used some doilies that I sponged with ink. and some sparkly ribbon.  The paper that I used for the backgrounds have a very vintage feel to them.  They are even kind of textured.  I just loved the paper and thought it made me feel comfy and like I was at my grandma's house.
Here are the two Vintage style cards I made.

Then I decided that with my love of fall and love for hot chocolate, I must make a card with my moose!  So here is my third card!

She is comfy in her home in her big fluffy chair with her feet up and she is ready for hot chocolate and her cup cake!  Oh how I wish this was me right now!  Still a bit too warm here for hot chocolate. But soon!
Have a great rest of your week.  Who knows, maybe I will make some more cards this week and show them off!
Till next time,
Happy crafting,


  1. I'm so glad you took the plunge and tried out StampNation! It can take a bit of time to explore it all, but that is a good thing. No lack of inspiration there. I love these cards you've created for Catherine's housewarming party, especially the moose because it captures the feeling of "home" for you. <3

  2. I ditto Heather's comment above. So glad you decided to take the plunge and join StampNation! These are great cards, the moose is my favorite! :)
